EnumBuilder.InvokeMember Method (String, BindingFlags, Binder, Object, Object[], ParameterModifier[], CultureInfo, String[])

Invokes the specified member. The method that is to be invoked must be accessible and provide the most specific match with the specified argument list, under the contraints of the specified binder and invocation attributes.

Namespace: System.Reflection.Emit
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override Object InvokeMember (
	string name,
	BindingFlags invokeAttr,
	Binder binder,
	Object target,
	Object[] args,
	ParameterModifier[] modifiers,
	CultureInfo culture,
	string[] namedParameters
public Object InvokeMember (
	String name, 
	BindingFlags invokeAttr, 
	Binder binder, 
	Object target, 
	Object[] args, 
	ParameterModifier[] modifiers, 
	CultureInfo culture, 
	String[] namedParameters
public override function InvokeMember (
	name : String, 
	invokeAttr : BindingFlags, 
	binder : Binder,

	culture : CultureInfo, 
	namedParameters : String[]
) : Object

The name of the member to invoke. This can be a constructor, method, property, or field. A suitable invocation attribute must be specified. Note that it is possible to invoke the default member of a class by passing an empty string as the name of the member.


The invocation attribute. This must be a bit flag from BindingFlags.


An object that enables the binding, coercion of argument types, invocation of members, and retrieval of MemberInfo objects using reflection. If binder is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the default binder is used. See Binder.


The object on which to invoke the specified member. If the member is static, this parameter is ignored.


An argument list. This is an array of objects that contains the number, order, and type of the parameters of the member to be invoked. If there are no parameters this should be null.


An array of the same length as args with elements that represent the attributes associated with the arguments of the member to be invoked. A parameter has attributes associated with it in the metadata. They are used by various interoperability services. See the metadata specs for details such as this.


An instance of CultureInfo used to govern the coercion of types. If this is null, the CultureInfo for the current thread is used. (Note that this is necessary to, for example, convert a string that represents 1000 to a double value, since 1000 is represented differently by different cultures.)


Each parameter in the namedParameters array gets the value in the corresponding element in the args array. If the length of args is greater than the length of namedParameters, the remaining argument values are passed in order.

Return Value

Returns the return value of the invoked member.

Exception typeCondition


This method is not currently supported in types that are not complete.

You can retrieve the type using Type.GetType or Assembly.GetType and use reflection on the retrieved type.
